Description geimer 1999-11-02 12:45:56 EST
Hello,

It seems that the 6.1 installer is bugging out for Sound
Blaster CDs. After installing sucessfully, the following
error occurs on boot.

    Finding module dependencies conf:1: missing argument
        can't open.

This results in no kernel modules being loaded (i.e. no
VFAT support, no ethernet, no cdrom, etc.). I found the
problem in the conf.modules file. The installer put the
following line in at the top

    alias sbpcd

When I deleted that line and added the following instead:

    options cdrom sbpcd=1
    alias cdrom sbpcd

Then everything worked fine.

Note, this problem occured with both the original boot
floppy that came with my 6.1 boxed set and the RHEA-1999:045
update disk, using either text install or the gui install
with both the GNU Workstation and a custom install.

This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.

On my particular hardware, conf.modules was setup incorrectly for the sbpcd
module. Entered by the installer as "alias sbpcd". When corrected to "alias
cdrom sbpcd" boot occurred normally.

Still there in beta3

Issue is resolved in next cut of RawHide.
Comment 7 Hans de Goede 2000-03-07 11:03:59 EST
Confirmed,

But isn't "alias cdrom mcdx" a bogus alias?
And besides that it doesn't add a cdrom entry to /etc/fstab (I'm creating a new
bug for this one)
